Mark Knapp of PhysiDex.com did an audio interview with me. The interview was done over Skype, so the recording is not studio-quality, but it may still be worth your while to listen to.
Here are Mark’s main questions:
— What are some of the biggest myths or misconceptions regarding stretching and flexibility for sport?
— What is MOST important to consider when stretching?
— What is the reasoning behind stretching warm vs. cold muscles?
So we talked about such myths as “stretching prevents injuries” and “stretch before a workout,” about the importance of maintaining good posture and correcting posture defects, and about the rationale for stretching cold vs. warm.
